Takoma Metro station site development: concept plans, study, and update

Stan Wall, Director of WMATA's Office of Real Estate and Station Planning, has provided us with 4 documents relating to proposed Takoma Metro station site development, which we have posted at the links behind the doc descriptions:
  1. Takoma Station Access Technical Memorandum (Draft 7-2-2013)
  2. Conceptual Site Plans
  3. Conceptual Floor Plans
  4. Conceptual Massing
Mr. Wall states, "All of these items will also be part of the package that is sent to our Board for their information and posted to the WMATA public website on Monday morning. As we've discussed, these plans will continue to evolve and be refined as the project moves through subsequent stages of review (Compact Public Hearing, Planned Unit Development process, etc.). And similarly, the proposed enhancements to transit facilities identified in the Station Access report are also subject to refinement as result of the feedback we expect to receive from these same stages of review."

Mr. Wall also advised us that "per the direction of WMATA Board Member and Planning, Program Development and Real Estate Committee Chair Muriel Bowser, the Takoma Joint Development item will be now be presented as an information item - rather than an action item - when it goes before the Committee on July 11th."

Finally, a reminder about a community meeting on proposed the Takoma Metro site development, July 16, 7:00 pm, at the Washington Theological Union building, 6896 Laurel St NW, Washington, DC, near Eastern Avenue NW. WMATA and developer EYA will present their Takoma plans.
